Conflicts only apply if two packages are not co-installable in general.
However, this is not the case here: libgpac3 and libgpac4 are generally
co-installable. There is just this one version of libgpac3 for which
this isn't true. For versioned Conflicts like this one, please use
versioned Breaks.

Second, the Replaces field tells apt that in the versioned Breaks lock
-in situation it is better to install libgpac4 and kick out libgpac3 (=
offending.version) at the same time. The alternative approach would be
to keep libgpac3 at the offending version and not install libgpac4 at
all, which is not what we prefer. Thus, please add the Replaces field.
